Buzz: What Mats Zuccarello Might Be Looking For

Mats Zuccarello Stay PositiveAccording to Larry Brooks, in the NY Post, Mats Zuccarello is looking for a new contract that will pay him around $2 million per season.

Brooks says that the Rangers are likely offering Zuccarello a deal that would pay him $1.5 million per season.

Zuccarello filed for arbitration last night. His hearing will take place in late July or early August. The Rangers can not walk away from a deal worth less than $3.5 million.

It’s been reported that the Rangers want to bring Zuccarello back at a salary closer to $1.25 million.

Zuccarello’s European agent said in late June that he thought a deal was close and would be for multiple years.

He said earlier in the week, in a Norwegian paper, that he wants to be a Ranger and isn’t stressing over the current situation.
